I had to make sure that he knew that I did appreciate his services

It's kinda funny, hubby! Most of the men who work as guides work for tips, so if I'm happy, they know they'll get a big score when my vacation is over!

But at the same time, I have to let him know that I am happy, that I do appreciate his services, otherwise he may leave for another tourist! So throughout the week, I had to make sure that he knew that I did appreciate his services and try to keep him around for the payout at the end of my stay.

I was lucky in that I had a young guide who was nervous, but I let him know he was doing fine.
